Find yourself making oodles of clay veneers from my Faux Collage Techniques tutorial or other veneer tutorials? If so then you’ve likely realized something … stamps, paints, and so much more end up in the trash … why, because you had to clean your tools before you reused them or put them away. Enter my friend, “Can’t Bear It.” “Can’t Bear It” is the name of my art journal that I “clean” my products on. From my scrapers, brushes, stamps and more …
This is a very easy tutorial that is meant to be used in conjunction with your leftover paints, scrapers, brushes, stamps, and other liquid materials used to make your Faux Collage Veneers. The idea behind this is NOT that you’re perfect, elegant, or design specific. This art journal is more like “junk journalling” or the “smash book” idea of art journalling. All you’re really doing is laying different mediums (as you use them) on top of each other to create a cool art journal. If you’re like me, you likely have at least one half-filled journal in your studio begging to be used again. Now’s that time…
Here’s the idea … with every product you use, rather than cleaning your brushes, scrapers, stamps, alcohol inks, etc with baby wipes or immediately taking them to the sink … place those unused, leftover bits of liquid materials and place them on the page in your art journal.
By then end of one of your sessions with polymer clay and mixed media elements, you will have a delightfully colored art journal page. This is a great way to fill up your art journal. Don’t forget that you can date the page and sign it to create a new “keepsake” of that special item you made in your studio!
